The rail roads used many of those vehicles they weren't duallys but had attachments on the front and rear for steel wheels that kept them on the tracks and the rubber tires riding on top of the rails most rail companies remove the attachments when the vehicles are sold, many were big blocks to carry the equipment most of which is heavy forged steel and 4 doors for a full crew

They had duallys back then............and also with just single wheels on the back.................could be either.

This was an era when trucks were real trucks and made to work...............not all this dressed up crap they sell today.............and a truck looked and worked like a truck.

And they had clutches, :D

I have found that in inclement weather the dually trucks were kind of a handfull to drive. The singles with their skinny wheels and tires just kind of hung on to the ice a bit better. JMO
